Pigmentation means colouring, your skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin. When your skin cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Damage caused by the sun, specifically UVA rays can cause your skin to develop unwanted ‘dark patches’. This is commonly known as hyperpigmentation.
Triggers in younger skin are caused through the alteration in hormone levels from use of the contraceptive pill and pregnancy which result in patchy, dark spots, often on the upper lip and forehead.
It is difficult to prevent pigmentation, particularly if the cause is hormone levels. However, sun damage can be prevented by simply wearing SPF everyday, not using sunbeds and keeping your face covered from the sunlight.
If the damage has already been done to your skin then Beau beauty Clinic have a range of treatments that can help to reduce dark spots by treating the pigmentation in all layers of the skin and prevent it from returning.
